“The Hunt”



All right Radachev, I’ll play your game. But I want to warn you that I’m changing the rules. From now on we’re both hunters.”



Employment Solicitation


Mr. Paladin:

My name is Vanessa Stuart and I am the widow of Sir Jack Stuart, whose name may not be unknown to you. My late husband’s timber holdings in cental Oregon are being ruthlessly usurped and I am in desperate need of help.


Vanessa Stuart



Ending letter from Boris Koznov Radachev

Mr. Paladin:

If you survive to read this it will be because you won the game and I will no longer be. Enjoy the fruits of your victory while you can for a greater hunt begins when life ends.

Poka my ne vstretimsya snova. (Until we meet again.)
